Found this shop
featured (ha!) on Regretsy’s Compare and Save.  JewelrybyMaitri lists this item
for $48.00.  While this Ebay seller has the same thing for $15.99:
And it is the same exact item, too, because JewelrybyMaitri and the Ebay seller from Hong Kong are using identical photos.  The Ebay seller thoughtfully keeps their transactions private, so resellers on Etsy and elsewhere can mark up their purchases as high as they dare to go.
Here’s a link to the Ebay seller’s Store:
Lots of items sold by JewelrybyMaitri can be found for sale by fashionshow.
The owner of JewelrybyMaitri claims these items are handmade to order by her.  Don’t think so.

    I will NEVER buy anything from the E-hole. It is getting to the point where if I make an online purchase, I will scour the internet comparing prices. No matter where you go there’s someone scamming or lying, but never fear – The E-holes integrity team will weed out all the crap! They NEVER shut down shops that are legitimate and allow resellers and others to remain…lol…NEVER….

    Here’s a wholesaler on Ali showing some peter pan collar necklaces on the same newsprint backgrounds shown in photos in JewelrybyMaitri and the Ebay seller. Not the same exact items, but photographed by the same person in China.

    Fauxtique frenzy on the front page:

    Smacks of reselling.

    This seller with bird branch crap is claiming it is her original design and all others are copying her and she will pursue.

    From the comments on a treasury showing reseller crap:

    Awww, but it’s such a “tweet” collection!

    Well Brandy, you also aren’t allowed to resell crap either. Soooo…why don’t you worry about getting all the Chinese reseller sh!t out of your store and not who makes a treasury of stuff.
    YOU have been reported.
    -Brandy- from IrinSkye says: 4 hours ago
    Nothing in my shop is resell. Everything in my shop is handmade in some way by me in accordance with Etsy’s ToU. You can look at any shop on Etsy, and see a design that has been copied, imitated, or re-worked in some way in a another shop. That is the unfortunate nature of online selling.

    But I will not tolerate being harassed or referenced in a negative way, especially when what is being done is in violation of Etsy’s Terms of Use.
    -Brandy- from IrinSkye
    I have had many designs that no one else had that are now in tens if not hundreds of shops. I get tired of having to point that out repeatedly, and having to spend time defending my work.

    So then did alibaba steal this necklace of yours?

    Uh oh. Alibaba also has Irin’s leaf necklace.


    Creative Etsian whose work is being “stolen”…

    My last comment on the treasury (I’m getting crabby today with this reselling garbage)

    TheBargainBabe from TheBargainBabe says: Just now
    Oh crap! Alibaba also has your leaf necklace!

    don’t even try to pretend you have come up with EVERY design on your own. Get your butt out of your head and quit being offended that someone is calling your work reseller straight-off-the-boat-from-china stuff exactly what it is.


    OH, and link to the treasury itself:
